The 7 Biggest iFears: Are your kids ok in the digital age?

Adults worry that smart phones are driving adolescents to distraction and making them lonely and depressed. Today’s teens are constantly connected, spending an average of 9 hours per day in front of their screens. But are their online lives placing them at risk? New findings delivered directly from teens’ phones are providing answers to these questions, along with some surprisingly positive messages for parents and teens. 

Join Professor Candice Odgers for a discussion of what parents, teens, and educators can do to promote positive development in the digital age.
